Reveries Reviews has moved to kellynroth.blog!
I’ve heard people say that reading fictional stories is a waste of time, and I wanted to point out why this is not true.
However, it was simply too big a subject for me! Books have taught me certain lessons … but they’ve taught other people completely different things. And I hate to narrow this broad subject down to just my opinions and experiences!
So, through Google Forms, I asked a variety of readers from social media the following questions: What does reading mean to you? How have novels helped you in your life? Why are they worth something to you?
Here are their responses.
One of my biggest pet peeves in fiction is Clueless Main Characters.
You’d think this would be one of the things authors would avoid. But it’s not. Throughout fiction, we see quite a spattering of main characters who are complete idiots.
I’m currently in the middle of Northanger Abbey, a book I absolutely adore. The main character, Catherine Moreland, is completely clueless.
